Hand blender bottom shaft (blade attachment) leaks oily stuff


I accidently got water into the bottom shaft of my Kenmore KHB320 hand blender; that is, the attachment that has the blade in it. It is now leaking some oily substance down the blade area, from where the blade attaches. I think it is machine oil and not something I want in my food!

I don't remember if there was a seal around the blade part, but there isn't now. Can this be fixed and how? Also does the inside need to be re-greased and how?

This blender has served me well so I hate to give it up, and Sears/Kenmore doesn't have a listing for the model any longer so can't provide a replacement part. I would very dearly appreciate any help on this! Many thanks in advance.

In the old days, there was a packing in certain places of certain applications.
Often it looked like a piece of string, usually a grayish color, as it often was impregnated with grease.
I would start with an automotive parts house, but it must be old and have old folks to help you, as young ones have no such experience.
You could also try a plumber, they used some packing string.
As a matter of fact, I have some in my plumbing repair parts, though I've no used it in 30 years.
You might have to use this each time you use the machine.
It should be not expensive.
God bless your efforts.

SOURCE: grease build up around blade and where it attaches to base

Grease can only creep into the blender vase if the oil seal has worn out, or the blenders blade shaft is worn and wobbling. Try cleaning all parts in alcohol to soften the seals. Rebuild kits and replacement blades can be found here (http://www.brevilleusa.com/breville-parts/blending.html)

Why doesn't blade spin?


Either the coupling from the motor with the fingers on it is not really attached to the motor shaft or the drive on the blade that engages with it is not attached to the blade shaft. One other thing is that on some models if the rubber jar seal between the beaker and the blade carrier is in the wrong place it can raise the blade drive to not engaging properly with the motor coupling. The gasket goes between the jar and the blade carrier, not under the blade carrier.

I can manually turn the blades inside the glass pitcher and I can turn the piece on the top of the motor base into which the pitcher blade attachment fits.


One of the parts is not being driven properly. Either the clutch on the top of the motor is not really attached to the motor shaft OR the clutch on the bottom of the blade is not engaging with the motor clutch OR the blade clutch is not properly attached to the blade shaft. On some models if you put the rubber sealing ring in the wrong place between the beaker and the blade housing it is enough to lift the clutches apart. The rubber wing goes between the beaker and the blade housing, not between the blade housing and the blade retaining ring.

Hello, I ordered a replacement coupling gear(?) and need to figure out how to replace it. This is the little grey plastic gear that attaches to the base unit causing the blade to spin. Here are some...


Hope you have solved your problem by now, but put a flathead screw driver in the bottom of the blender to hold the blender shaft in place then turn the gear by hand or with a plyers and it should just screw off, it is reverse threaded...

Old bamix - motor on but the blade does not turn. unscrewed the bottom casing and cleaned out the oily part but still not working?


If possible, check the spot where the blade fits onto the driveshaft. It's probably a toothed gear or wheel. I have had blenders "die" before due to wear between the drive shaft and the blade. The blade would bump along inconsistently as the gear teeth failed to catch.

How do i turn the bottom piece off the blender?


If it's like many other units, you can unscrew the bottom, BUT its a left-hand thread! (this is so as the blades spin colckwise, they don't unscrew the clear plastic body from the base if they trap stuff against the side).

Broken glass jug on kitchenaid blender model 5ksb2aer4


Look at the underside of the blade shaft. The metal wing nut on the end of the shaft secures the blade assembly to cream coloured plastic blade base. The wing nut also transmits the drive from the rubber coupling on your blender to the blade shaft. The wing nut has a LEFT HAND thread.
The left hand thread ensures the blade assembly does not unscrew during normal blender use.

Firstly disassemble the blender blade assembly. Place a folded tea towel over the blades and hold the blades firmly. If you do not use a tea towel you may cut yourself.

Grip the wing nut with your other hand and unscrew it CLOCKWISE.
Remove the wing nut. You can now remove the blade from the plastic base.

Put the blade assembly in the new jug and offer up the plastic base from under the jug so that the blade shaft protudes enough for you to install the wing nut.

Screw the wing nut ANTI-CLOCKWISE to secure the blades to the plastic base.

Do not over tighten the wing nut; you may have to replace your jug again at some point.

Whisk blade on BAMIX hand-held blender is frozen!


try to gently twist the blade up and around the shaft with a pair of pliers. I've loosened mine by pushing and pulling on the blade with the pliers. be sure to use caution so as not to wreck the blade.

Leaking blender


Mine also leaked from day 1. I just read in the manual to first place the bottom and blade assembly on the counter, then seat the gasket around the blade assembly, making sure it is just under the lip of the blade piece (careful, you have to maneuver around the blades). Then place the jar on the assembly and screw in tightly. This worked and I have no more leaks.
This is different than other blenders where you place the gasket on the jar and then attach the bottom. It is a poor design, but after what I paid for it, I am glad to be able to use it and not just trash it.
